  • A 2 Week Adventure

    "My husband, our 16 year old, her friend and I spent 2 weeks exploring Belize and staying at Sunset Point. Sadly the seaweed was abundant this year and we were unable to hang out at any beaches while there. However we were not at a lack for things to do. The girls spent their quiet time at the tiki hut on the water at the condo for their quiet time as opposed to the beach and my husband and I enjoyed the pool and the views from the condo and the crows nest. Our first week was spent on jungle adventures: monkey river cruise, swimming at the blue hole, Cockscomb, Bocawina and Xunantunich. The second week was spent on the water snorkeling, exploring the cayes and sailing. Placencia is a fun time and the food was good and incredibly reasonable. Although we planned to eat in the condo frequently, we wound up eating out more often. Wonderful time. The condo was clean, pretty and very comfortable for the 4 of us although it could use a bit of updating."

  • A perfect week!

    "We had an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable week at Barnacle Bills. We spent most of our time eating, drinking and hanging out under our very own beach huts. Some great restaurants, bars and a bowling alley within walking distance. The way the bungalos are built make for a perfect breeze flowing through the house. Not to mention waking up to the gorgeous sunrise. We enjoyed our daily morning coffees chatting with Bill. Bill and Adriane were very helpful hosts and we hope to go back!"

  • Relaxing -- felt like home

    "We would definitely recommend the Treeptop Villa. Each floor is air conditioned, the kitchen is modern and the master bedroom and bath is wonderful with a veranda off the bedroom. It was always quiet and Aaron was available to help us in any way to make our stay enjoyable. The beach is a very short walk across the lane and is a great place for walks. We enjoyed the restaurants in Placencia and enjoyed swimming at the beach at the harbor. We were not able to scuba dive because of colds but found enough other ways to enjoy this country. We visited a banana farm and the tour was very interesting. Be sure to have some fish meals while you are in Belize. We talked to several locals and learned about the country. The Treetop Villa is a very safe place to stay because of security at the gate."

  • Beautiful Lagoon front home

In general, the clothing is quite casual. Lightweight cotton shirts, shorts and skirts are most suitable for the climate. If you are planning on doing some nature walks or excursions, make sure you have a comfortable pair of walking shoes. Insect repellant is another essential. It’s advisable to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants at night and on jungle tours to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes. Leave valuables such as expensive jewelry at home. If you are keen photographer, pack an extra memory card as you are likely to take loads of photos.
